Did a massive fishing spree to get Byleth about 2300 exp away from capping Professor Level, so it will be capped after the first week in Chapter 10. Got Byleth to D Riding and promoted to cav cause I need Move +1 eventually.
Ignatz/Raphael Paralogue: Free/50 Turns
Just trained dudes. Saved all the merchants.
Another Quest Battle Whose Name I Forget: Free/50 Turns
This was the one with the Fraldarius soldiers on the Chapter 1 map. Did a bunch of Impregnable Wall broken weapon nonsense to get Dimitri to A Authority for Chapter 9 and to boost his riding rank for Move +1 later.
Between these two maps Byleth mastered cav, Dimitri mastered Paladin, Felix mastered Brawler, Ingrid mastered Pegasus Knight and cav, Lorenz mastered cav, Marianne mastered Mage, and Manuela mastered Soldier.
Chapter 9: 2/52 Turns
Had Felix as Dimitri's adjutant.
Turn 1 Sniper!Leonie with the March Ring went left to block off the NPC and killed the beast's first health bar with a Killer Bow+ crit. Byleth and Ingrid kill the first health bar of the beast north of the spawn, and then Warlock!Lorenz ORKOs the second life with Fire. Dimitri moves up, then Manuela uses Retribution on him and he gets danced by Marianne. He then waits in range of all three beasts up north equipped with a Killer Lance+. On enemy phase he kills all of the first health bars with Battalion Vantage/Wrath crits.
Turn 2 Leonie finishes off the beast down south and Dimitri kills the lance-weak one up north then cantos over so everyone else can trade around the Knowledge Gem while killing the remaining two. Fed the sword-weak one to Manuela because it was funny (and she actually gets decent exp from it unlike everyone else) and the other one to Lorenz.
Manuela/Hanneman Paralouge: Free/52 Turns
Flayn/Seteth Paralogue: Free/52 Turns
Ashe/Catherine Paralogue: Free/52 Turns
Wanted the Exp Gem and Boots so that's why these specific maps were chosen this month. Mostly just did wexp grinding for Dimitri and Ingrid since everyone it a bit overleveled due to how small the team is so they don't get much exp. Got C+ Bows on Byleth, B Axes and B Flying on Dimitri, A Brawling on Felix, B Riding on Ingrid, C Faith and C Authority on Lorenz, A Bows and mastered cav with Leonie, and Monk mastery on Manuela. Also grinded down the C Rank flying battalion to below 1/3rd endurance for later.
Chapter 10: 1/53 Turns
Gave Byleth the boots and a rocky burdock so she could exactly reach Kronya at 1 range and OHKO her with Smash with a Steel Axe+. Felix and Ingrid used Shove and Repo on Byleth respectively and then Manuela and Lorenz used Repo and Draw Back on Marianne. Byleth full-moved up and got danced. Leonie repo'd Dimitri to the left so he could full-move and OHKO the Magic Staff Dark Mage with Curved Shot. Byleth went up and killed Kronya.
After the cutscene, Byleth is exactly 9 tiles away from Solon if someone kills the Armor Knight in the way, so Ingrid moves up next to Byleth and ORKOs it with a Steel Bow+. Since Byleth can reach Solon without a dance, Marianne dances Dimitri to get him some more axe wexp and to max out the Chichol Wyverns Battalion. Felix kills the Hammer guy and everyone else kills a random enemy for the exp beforeSolon gets OHKOed by the Steel Axe+.
Sylvain Paralogue: Free/53 Turns
Felix Paralogue: Free/53 Turns
Shamir/Alois Paralogue: Free/53 Turns
Got Hit +20 on Dimitri and Ingrid, Death Blow and Magic +2 on Byleth, Steal on Manuela, and a bunch of armor wexp on Alois by promoting him to Armor Knight and having him adjutant dudes.
Chapter 11: 1/54 Turns
Ingrid adjutant for Dimitri and Alois adjutant for Lorenz.
Byleth and Manuela used Reposition on Marianne, and Leonie and Felix used Reposition/Shove on Dimitri. Since Lorenz was free, I had him kill an enemy with adjutant Alois for a little bit of armor wexp. Dimitri killed a priest, got danced, and then OHKOed Flame Emperor with the Hammer+. With the exp gem he got an entire level out of it which was cool.
Hilda/Cyril Paralogue: Free/54 Turns
Got Reposition on Seteth and Strength +2 on Alois.
The Last Quest Battle of Part 1: Free/54 Turns
Got Deathblow on Seteth and Alois, Fierce Iron Fist on Felix, and Bowbreaker on Lorenz. Also got Seteth to A Lances exactly.
Chapter 12: 2/56 Turns
It's at this point I toss uniform exp distribution to the side in favor of get Dimitri to level 30 ASAP strats. Also gave all of the rocky burdocks and energy drops I had to Byleth to make Chapter 13 more reliable. Seteth adjutant for Dimitri to get him axe and flying wexp, Alois on Felix and Lorenz on Leonie because they weren't needed for clearing the map.
Turn 1 Manuela uses Retribution on Dimitri, who is a Paladin cause I need a Battalion with Assault Troop and the Chichol Wyverns have too much durability to get into Battalion Vantage/Wrath range atm. Byleth moves down and kills a Pegasus Knight then cantos into the spot it was occupying. Dimitri then moves next to Byleth, equips the exp gem and kills the Pegasus Knight with Assault Troop. Dimitri gets danced and then re-equips the March Ring to full move down and use Assault Troop on the Warrior above Randolph so Dimitri doesn't have to dodge any gambits. Ingrid repos Byleth out of range so the Pegasus Knight by Dimitri attacks him instead of Byleth. Felix and Leonie just kill some dudes for exp. Dimitri murders a ton of dudes with Battalion Vantage/Wrath crits.
Turn 2 Leonie and Felix self-improve some more, then Ingrid and Marianne repo/dance Byleth down to kill and enemy blocking Edelgard, then Dimitri moves next to Byleth and equips the exp gem again before ORKOing Edelgard with the Killer Bow+ to reach level 28.
Chapter 13: 3/59 Turns
Dimitri hands off the March Ring and Knowledge Gem to Byleth and uses Reposition on her. Byleth then moves 9 tiles onto a wall in range of only one enemy with a gambit, equips the Knowledge Gem and a forged Longbow and waits to activate Alert Stance. With the forged Longbow, Byleth can OHKO the thieves and Snipers. The thieves actually deal zero damage so Byleth can survive getting hit by both the Silver Bow and Venin Bow, but I'd prefer to dodge the Venin Bow at least otherwise the poison damage will leave her in kill range of the Assassins by the boss if she also gets hit by the Silver Bow.
Turn 2 Byleth moves over, dismounts, and OHKOs the boss with a Longbow Curved Shot. If she couldn't OHKO she could just double and ORKO with an Iron Bow+, but this way she can kill some Snipers on enemy phase for the extra exp. Dimitri just gambits a dude.
Turn 3 Dimitri kills an enemy with a droppable item using his gambit so he can send the exp gem to the convoy so Byleth can use it when killing the boss again. If Ingrid spawned earlier I could actually 2-turn the map cause she can reach the boss from her starting position if he spawns in the north. Oh well.
I promise to make a stat block soon.
Dealing With Deserters: Free/59 Turns
Had Paladin!Dimitri with Paladin!Byleth adjutant on the right get applied with Retribution and Impregnable Wall so he could tank 6+ archers a turn for the first 5 turns to get a bunch of riding rank. Wyvern Rider!Alois (Seteth adjutant) and Armor Knight!Felix (Marianne adjutant) killed stuff on the right side. Felix was an Armor Knight in order to build armor rank to reach Smite faster. Manuela healed Felix and Alois.
Annette/Gilbert Paralogue: Free/59 Turns
Got everyone to level 30 except Manuela/Ingrid/Alois, although Seteth doesn't have the weapon ranks for Wyvern Lord anyway so it didn't really matter for him. Marianne reached A+ Riding and mastered Paladin by being Leonie's adjutant with a Knowledge Gem.
Chapter 14: 2/61 Turns
Felix and Byleth on the right, everyone else on the left.
Manuela used Retribution on everyone and then Dimitri killed two archers with Marianne's help, and Seteth/Alois each killed an enemy before all cantoing into formation for Ingrid to use Dance of the Goddess on them. Alois and Seteth each kill one more enemy and then canto down, while Dimitri kills the ballista archer, gets danced, then moves down and kills a Dark Bishop in range of all of Randolph's dudes. Leonie uses Assault Troop on the left-hand group of enemies. Felix kills the armor knight on the right while Byleth kills the Pegasus Knight then cantos down in range of the armor knight and archer. Dimitri needs to dodge the gambits so he can move next turn but he has 0 chance of death even if he did get hit by one because Batallion Vantage/Wrath kills everything even when rattled. Byleth also has Battalion Vantage so even if she gets hit by the archer she's safe.
Turn 2 there are so few enemies left that most of the units on the left have nothing to do. Leonie and Ingrid kill the enemies that were stunned by the gambit last turn, then Alois moves down a bit and gets danced just for the extra hit from Special Dance before killing a Fortress Knight with the Hammer+ and cantoing out of range of every other enemy except one last Fortress Knight. Dimitri kills Randolph while standing in range of everything else. Felix kills the archer that attacked Byleth and she full-moves down and kills the Oneger!Archer while standing in range of the Pegasus Knights. Mauela and Seteth break some fences for the wexp cause they have nothing else to do. Everything left dies to Dimitri and Alois on enemy phase.
Petra/Bernadetta Paralogue: Free/61 Turns
Building riding rank on dudes for Move +1.
Pirates in the North: Free/61 Turns
Same thing here, except desert tiles make moving a bit annoying for cavalry but thankfully Alois can SMITE them through the sand. Got Move +1 on Dimitri.
Chapter 15: 1/62 Turns
Had most of my units use movement arts on Ingrid/Dimitri/Marianne to get them in range for a Dance of the Goddess formation. Used it on Dimitri/Marianne/Seteth/Leonie. One of Seteth/Leonie needs to repo Marianne after this but the other can kills something for the exp. Dimitri moves up and gets danced again after killing a Fortress Knight so he can exactly reach Gwendel from 2-range and ORKO him with a Tomahawk, also reaching B+ Axes at the same time.
Mercedes/Caspar Paralogue: Free/62 Turns
Caspar killed the Death Knight so I could get the scythe and dudes got exp, mostly Byleth.
Marianne Paralogue: Free/62 Turns
Just did it in 2 turns cause I was lazy and didn't want to deal with fog of war.

Ferdinand/Lysithea Paralogue: Free/64 Turns
Dimitri, Byleth, and Felix each went to an area of the map and killed most of the enemies while other dudes picked up scraps. Forgot to deploy Lorenz cause he got put at the bottom of the unit list oops.

Lorenz was adjutant to Leonie to build riding rank.
Aux Battle: Free/64 Turns
Got Reposition on Lorenz finally.
Chapter 17: 2/66 Turns
Yeah no 1 turn for me sadly. 2 turn is super simple at least. Byleth OHKOed Calude with Helm Splitter!Silver Axe and Dimitri OHKOed Edelgard with Atrocity.
Aux Battle: Free/66 Turns
More wexp grinding.
Chapter 18: 1/67 Turns
Dimitri ORKOed Cornelia with a Spear. Lorenz reached A+ Riding.

Aux Battle: Free/67 Turns
Chapter 19: 1/68 Turns
Byleth ORKOed Aurendel with a Silver Bow and Battalion Desperation so I wouldn't have to deal with Pavise (although I think Battalion Desperation!Brave Axe would kill him regardless of Pavise Procs so whatever).
Aux Battle: Free/68 Turns
Chapter 20: 1/69 Turns
Byleth ORKOed Death Knight with Failnaught and Battalion Desperation. Actually had enough movement to attack at 1 range instead with Spear of Assal but I want to use Failnaught.
Aux Battle: Free/69 Turns
Dimitri reached S+ Lances and Manuela reached A+ Riding.
Chapter 21: 1/70 Turns
Rescue outdated, Rally Move activated.
Byleth, Manuela, Alois, Felix, Marianne, and Ingrid on the left, everyone else on the right although the right side units don't do anything.
Alois moves down and kills the War Master above the forest tile with a Brave Axe+ then cantos onto the tile the War Master was occupying. Manuela repos Marianne over the wall then full-moves down. Byleth repos Ingrid over the wall then moves adjacent to the forest tile. Marianne full moves onto the forest tile, trades the Move Ring to Byleth, then dances Byleth. Byleth then moves up, trades the Move Ring to Ingrid and then uses RALLY MOVE on Ingrid before cantoing next to the right of Marianne. Felix moves down and Smites Manuela into the Dance of the Goddess formation next to Marianne. Ingrid then full moves to the tile below Marianne, trades the Move Ring back to Marianne, then uses Dance of the Goddess.
Alois then Smites Marianne down. Byleth moves next to Marianne, takes the Move Ring, then uses Draw Back to gain an extra tile of movement for both her and Marianne before full-moving down exactly 14 spaces away from Hubert. Manuela then repos Marianne down in range to dance Byleth and then waits near the Opera House to get the Opera Company Volunteers. Marianne then dances Byleth who full moves down in range to kill Hubert with Curved Shot!Literally any bow. I used Failnaught for style points.
Chapter 22: 2/72 Turns
Lorenz uses Impregnable Wall on Marianne, Leonie, and Ingrid (who have the two Dance of the Goddess battalions), and Manuela uses Retribution on Dimitri and Byleth. Everyone does a bunch of repoing and smiting to get Dimitri/Byleth/Leonie/Marianne into a DotG formation on the left side (although going right is the same so it doesn't really matter). After getting refreshed by Ingrid, Dimitri and Byleth kill the enemies blocking the entrance to the throne room and canto back by Marianne to get refreshed by Leonie. They then move up in range to attack Edelgard next turn. There's 0 chance of death since Marianne/Leonie/Ingrid have Impregnable Wall and Dimitri/Byleth OHKO all the throne room enemies with Battalion Vantage.
Turn 2 Byleth kills the first health bar with the Brave Axe+, then cantos a tile over. Dimitri trades Byleth to the Killer Axe+ then ORKOs the second health bar with the Brave Lance+. On enemy phase the third health bar gets OHKOed by a Battalion Wrath crit from Dimitri at ~50 crit and the last one dies to a hit + crit from Byleth at ~70 crit. Everyone else is free to attack random dudes to burn RNs if needed
